Dog Gone…

Gypsy has been chewing away at a spot on her leg.  I wanted to take her to the vet but Wally didn’t want to spend money that fast.  So yesterday I bought one of those “bonnets” for Gypsy, the kind that keeps your dog  from reaching parts of their body that you don’t want them to chew on.  Kind of pathetic looking, huh?

Poor old dog!  You’d think we were trying to shame her!  Wesley came home and looked at her and burst out laughing. That was a little shameful. However as she tried to go out the doggie door, I laughed too. She has figured out how to do it though!  And she does not seem to feel any shame at all.  She’s still very perky.

Today it was absolutely beautiful here in Colorado, but I was going to skip walking. Somehow though, Gypsy always seems to know when I have my shoes on and she shadows me all over the house until we go out.  So I felt guilty and took her for a walk.  After all it was trash day, her favorite!  She didn’t seem to care that she had a lamp shade on, so why should I? In fact she was not held back in any way.  She took on those big dogs behind the fence just like always!  And the pooches she passed on the sidewalk got an earful too!  

I did feel a little sorry for her, and when I caught her up on the bed, I let her stay!

Awwwww poor Gypsy... I have to admit, I've re-read this post twice so I could laugh! I just keep picturing her trying to go in and out the doggie door.... :)
